Comparison on Professional Nursing Journals vs. Non-Professional Magazine Articles
In the following comparison we will see what the characteristics are for each article as well as advantages of reading professional journals compared to the disadvantages of non-professional magazine articles.
The rapidly escalating patient acuity level in today's acute care hospitals and medical settings, demand greater specialization and more advanced clinical nursing skills. Professional nursing journals are an excellent source of continuing education and practical clinical update for nurses. Whereas non-professional magazine articles may not be evidence based and therefore may lead to misinformation. Articles of clinical interest appear to be the most widely read sections.
In the article “Women’s Risk for Heart Disease” there are several characteristics demonstrated. First, the topic is focused and explored in depth discussing coronary heart disease in women giving risk factors and susceptibility. The language in the article is more understandable by the medical community versus the general public in most cases. The poll taken by female readers were generally under the age of fifty. Response included the following information that included age, family history, personal history, hormone status, smokers/non- smokers, exercise, blood pressure issues and blood fats ingested daily. As a whole, the medical community would benefit from the results more than the general public because of the high tech methodology and lingo.
In addition the article was written by nurses in the specific field as well as the article being published by an actual medical school of nursing containing references and a bibliography.
In contrast the non-professional magazine article “Women and Heart Disease” is designed to inform the…...

In closing, I would like to use Nesset’s words, once more, as he suggests that handicaps are simply challenges to overcome and that we all are people like everyone else, “…he begins to sense, the warmth of the blind man's touch still vibrating in his hand, that we are all in this together, and that that really is something” (1994, pp.116).

... Comparison on Public Health and Community Health. Shelly Shew NUR/408 October 29, 2012 Kim Oatman Comparison on Public Health and Community Health Nursing. This paper will reflect the history of public health and significant events related to these agencies. The difference between public and community health will be acknowledged. Also information included on county, state, and national public health resources. There has been measurable growth and expansion over the years in regard to public health and its creation. Identification of Public health goes as far back as the 14th century. Towns and cities created a system known as quarantine to deter the bubonic plague (Black Death). Travelers and merchandise from places known to carry infections put in isolation. This procedure was in use until the 19th century to protect the public from the smallpox, syphilis, and cholera epidemics. Public health established services in 1798 as the Marine Hospital Service. This came about by early efforts of the federal government to provide health care to merchant seamen, protecting seaport cities from epidemics. In 1813 charitable services started by the Ladies Benevolent Society of Charleston, South Carolina, health care to the sick and poor. Another step toward the improvement of public health was the creation of the American Medical Association in 1847. Shortly after their existence this group formed a hygiene committee to conduct sanitary surveys and to develop a system to......

A Comparison

...A Comparison of Values In today’s society, having a moral obligation to others is essential when interacting with individuals or growing a successful organization as Kudler Fine Foods. Valuing and respecting individuals creates an environment in which everyone can live and work together in a more harmonious environment. Upon completing the Williams Institute Ethics Awareness Inventory self assessment, reflecting on the results and my own personal values, I believe that Kudler Fine Foods and I possess similar values and moral obligations. As a manager of Kudler Fine Foods my ability to perform my duties that coincide with my values would allow me to further the growth of the organization and create an environment that is both positive to all stakeholders at Kudler Fine Foods. According to the Williams Institute Ethics Awareness Inventory self assessment my ethical profile was said to be most closely aligned with Obligation. I have always believed that it is my obligation to do what is morally right. The assessment summarized me as believing everyone has a right to individual respect, which in most cases is true and I do believe that most people have a right to individual respect. However, when individuals fail to respect others, the right to individual respect is no longer a right. I do have a strong belief that in order to become a person of good moral character I have to do what is right for not only me but others around me. The self assessment was insightful, and I do...

...Analogy The clear message from the writer here is that caress Cashmere Luxury Body Wash will stimulate your senses. The feel and smell will be luxurious and extraordinary. The analogy is Cashmere Luxury Body Wash compared to being wrapped in a silky soft pashmina surrounded by the blend of white orchid milk and warm vanilla essence. Incidentally, ‘pashmina’ is said to be the finest cashmere wool. It would be difficult to say that this is a strong comparison. Cashmere wool, vanilla and orchid milk are a tough sell when compared to body wash. On the other hand, the comparison does provoke a strong desire to actually be wrapped in pashmina while inhaling the warm essence of vanilla and orchid milk, white orchid milk nonetheless. The smooth supple feel of the body wash could be compared to the feel of cashmere. Textures are easily compared so I could imagine the feeling on the skin may be similar. Fragrances too can be duplicated and used in perfumes, shampoos, and body washes. A direct and believable association can be made there. Vanilla is a somewhat familiar fragrance as it is used in cooking as well. Orchid milk however, is another story. I suppose orchids are popular and may be a recognizable smell. Orchid milk though perhaps not so recognizable. I think perhaps the figure of speech could relate more specifically to cashmere as opposed to pashmina. Cashmere is more recognizable when referring to fine wool. Perhaps the reference to orchid milk is to compare the......

...Licensure Application Comparison Nurses and Professional counselors both belong to the health care fields; however, they requirements totally opposite from one another. Both application require a fee and request that the individual graduated from an approved school. First as a nurse, you will have to apply for a six month temporary permit and take a board approved refresher course. Second, you will complete the Texas Nursing Jurisprudence Exam along with a Nursing Jurisprudence Prep Couse. After completing the listed items, the nursing form require that the requester pass the State Board Test Pool Examination (SBTPE) with a minimum score of 350 and the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). They also must hold a licensure in another jurisdiction which has the same requirements as Texas. While as a professional counselor in Texas, applicants must have 300 clock-hours of supervised practicum experience, 100 hours direct client counseling contact, and an internship must be present on your official transcript. One of the first things that you will notice on the application form, is the checklist. On this checklist, that the nursing application does not have or require, there is a slot for your supervisor agreement form and renewal card. After reading the two application forms, I noticed that the major difference between nursing and professional counselor application, is that the professional counselor application requires you to have......

Comparison and Contrast Drinking Articles

...Comparison and Contrast: “Too Many Colleges are in Denial about Alcohol Abuse” and “The Battle of the Binge” “Too Many Colleges are in Denial about Alcohol Abuse” and “The Battle of the Binge” are both two unique pieces of writing that dig deep into the aspects of consuming alcohol, and drinking too much of it, referred to as “binge drinking.” They acknowledge the fact that drinking alcohol itself in proper moderation is not bad, but the abuse of alcohol is. “Too Many Colleges are in Denial about Alcohol Abuse” is similar to “The Battle of the Binge” by pinpointing drinking in college specifically, and stressing the problems related to binge drinking and how the change is going to be difficult; however, “Too Many Colleges are in Denial about Alcohol Abuse” is different from “The Battle of the Binge” by the using logos more predominantly throughout the entirety of the essay and placing less emphasis on personal experience than “The Battle of the Binge.” Both essays are similar to each other because they both focus on students drinking while in college, rather than in a different stage of life. They explain that there is a consistent and problematic rise of binge drinking in universities. In “Too Many Colleges are Still in Denial about Alcohol Abuse,” it is stated that “colleges have a serious problem with alcohol abuse among students, and it is not getting any better” and a survey by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching found that “college......

...Comparison between California and Texas There are many things to consider and compare when deciding to move to another location. One has to consider the climate, cultures, economics, crime rate, and agriculture. Some states are so different, they don’t seem like they’re in the same country. Many people move to California or Texas for the vast opportunities. The climates in California range from cool wintry weather in the north, to sunny and hot weather in the south. Texas weather changes from hot to rainy and sometimes too cold with some areas with sleet and snow. Californians take pride in their location, and they are proud to live in one of the most diverse places in the continent of the United States. The environment plays a role in attracting good employees and keeping them healthy. Forbes in 2007 ranked California as the 14th greenest state in the nation, and gave Texas a rank of 34. The publication based its ranking on such factors as energy consumption and pollution ( news). The housing in California is a lot more expensive than in Texas. There’s no point relocating to another state if your employees can’t find a place to live. According to, the median sales price of a home in California is $452,000, compared to only $144,900 in Texas ( news). The school system in California the students are taught very different compared to the students in Texas. The scores of tests that are given between the two states explain very much the difference......

...Vol 453|1 May 2008 COMMENTARY Making the grade t’s a familiar story. Children around the world have been tested, and the United States is in trouble. A US Department of Education report1 from March concludes that “without substantial and sustained changes to the educational system, the United States will relinquish its leadership in the twentyfirst century”. The panic plays out in countless newspaper articles and policy reports, recently leading to legislative responses such as the America COMPETES Act, which contains a list of measures to boost average mathematics and science test scores. A country’s place in the new global economy is, according to these reports, determined by its rank in the maths- and science-score hierarchy. Following this reasoning, one would conclude that the US economy is threatened not only by Japan and South Korea, but also by Finland, Singapore, New Zealand and the Czech Republic. The rankings that engender these fears are primarily based on two tests administered to middle- and high-school students since 1995: the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) and the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). Improving education should be a priority for the nation, but erroneous interpretations of international test scores may drive economic and competitiveness policy in the wrong direction. When we consider that education testing shows formidable US strength as the largest producer of......

... The high standard of education provided could only be beneficial for the students if the certificates of the degree awarded to students are recognized in the country. No matter what is the curriculum criteria of the public universities,at least, the certificates issued by them are acknowledged. On the other hand most of the private universities have not gained recognition from the concerned boards of higher education.This includes many private medical universities and other small scale universities opened at various places across all the cities but their degrees are not recognized by the Higher Education Comission.As a result their alumni face difficulties in finding employment in established firms and departments. Recently, a news article reported that the students of the Bannu Medical College (BMC) protested in the fedral capital to gain recognition of their medical college by Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC). They feared that without recognition of their degrees by University of Health Sciences they would be denied even house jobs in reputable hospitals. A student said, “We took entrance tests like other students in Khyber Medical College and Ayub Medical College yet our future is uncertain.” However, there are certain exceptions to this as well. Most public universities in pakistan are facing the problem of the lack of funds available to them. As a result, they are not able to hire highly qualified professionals who could bring in more......

...I want to start my article by criticizing myself for calling football as soccer. Although I hate calling football as soccer I know that most of audience is Americans and what they call football isn't football. (As a sports admirer I watched American football matches and kind of like the game but I am against a game played with hands being called football:) There are two kind of people soccer lovers and basketball lovers. What is the differences between those two games. (I can hear you saying: "One is played with foot, other with hands.":) * Soccer is more of a team work. A team playing in great harmony is more likely to win over a team with one super star. * Basketball is a game of superstars. One man can change everything. (Michael Jordan. No other word needed to say) * Soccer is a game of strategy spread over all 90 minutes, leaves not much room for suprises. * Basketball is a game of breaking points. The whole course of the game can change in last 10 seconds. * Soccer can be played by anyone. It doesn't matter how tall or muscled you are. Every kid can dream of being a soccer star. * Basketball is for big guys. If you are short you can dream of being a basketball critic. * Soccer can be played everywhere. I remember playing with crushed coke cans as ball and goal made of two stones. * Basketball needs equipment. You have to have good ball and a hoop at least. * Soccer is an outdoors sport.You can play soccer in green fields or under......

...Comparison among the monopoly and oligopoly Competition in the market. A monopoly market contains a single firm that produces goods with no close substitute, with significant barriers to entry of other firms. An A monopoly and an oligopoly are economic market structures where there is imperfect oligopoly market has a small number of relatively large firms that produce similar but slightly different products. Again, there are significant barriers to entry for other enterprises. In a monopoly, the seller charges high prices for the goods because there is no competition. In an oligopoly, the prices are moderate due to the presence of competition. However, they are higher than they would be in perfect competition. Barriers to entry in a monopoly market are high due to technology, high capital requirement, government regulation, patents and high distribution overheads. In an oligopoly market, the barriers to entry are high due to the economies of scale. A monopoly draws power from the fact that it is the only viable seller of the product in the industry. However, in an oligopoly, firms can influence the market by setting their prices, marketing strategies and customer service. In oligopoly, firms may collude rather than compete. The cooperation makes them operate as though they were one firm. This changes the market structure from being an oligopoly to a monopoly. There must be some measure of competition in an oligopoly market structure. The geographical size of the......

...This article is published in a peer-reviewed section of the Utrecht Law Review Four Case Studies on Corporate Social Responsibility: Do Conflicts Affect a Company’s Corporate Social Responsibility Policy? Cristina A. Cedillo Torres, Mercedes Garcia-French, Rosemarie Hordijk, Kim Nguyen, Lana Olup* 1. Introduction 1.1. Background and objectives This article will discuss the different Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) issues that emerged within ­ four multinationals (Apple, Canon, Coca-Cola and Walmart). There is no clear definition of CSR. In Corporate Social Responsibility, Legal and semi-legal frameworks supporting CSR Lambooy gives an r o ­ verview of several definitions of CSR.1 The European Commission defines CSR as ‘the ­ esponsibility of enterprises for their impacts on society’.2 This is the definition which is the most suitable for the c ­ ontext of the article’s research question. As this article will focus on companies from the US and Japan, the authors also provide an overview of the focus on CSR from the US and Japanese perspective. In the US there is no governmental regulation regarding CSR or business best practices. Instead, according to findings from Bennett American, companies have a marked tendency to use codes of conduct.3 The American CSR perspective could be described as following a principles-based approach, with codes of conduct that prescribe values and principles which company members as a whole should aspire to......

...Comparison Matrix Paper Nyenye Matthews Grand Canyon University: RES-811 June 8, 2016 Comparison Matrix Paper At first thought, the journey of completing a doctoral program can be scary, nerve wrecking and/or cause you to have anxiety especially when faced with having to decide on a topic for your dissertation before you even start class. All of these feelings eventually subside once the newly doctoral learner starts their first course. The purpose of this paper is to compare three empirical articles on the topic of doctoral identity. Weidman & Stein (2003) wanted “to examine the relationship among an academic department’s informal structures and the socialization of doctoral students to the scholar role as reflected in their level of participation in scholarly activities”. Baker & Lattuca (2010), sought “to develop an interdisciplinary approach to the study of doctoral education as a path to the professoriate”. Visser, Visser & Schlosser (2003), investigated “critical thinking as a disciplined manner of thought which a person uses to assess the validity of something”. These articles address three different ways of how a doctoral learner can find their doctoral identity. Comparison of Research Questions Even though each study asked different research questions, it seems as though each group of authors developed research questions based on the same idea in mind; to determine if “Socialization of doctoral students to academic norms, developmental......
